One boy said "My mom would throw up if she were doing this." I personally was not squeamish at all, and was so excited by it, but I can imagine that some might not feel that way, after all, just look:
That's a cow artery.
We got a dear heart, but some of the top had been cut off (come on butcher! Don't you know this is SCIENCE?-jk)
But it was the cow heart that stole my class's heart--hehehehe, yah---
Look how HUGE it was!:
I think this is my favourite homeschool photo of myself. I debating about putting it as my Facebook profile photo hahaha.
But I found out I told my kids a fib. I said a whale's arteries were big enough to swim in. They went home and researched it, and proved me wrong....oops.
